of americans agree with us on this. and by the way, so did ronald reagan, one of the staunchest defenders of the second amendment, who wrote to congress in 1994 urging them -- this is ronald reagan speaking -- urging them to listen to the american public and to the law enforcement community and support a ban on the further manufacture of military-style assault weapons. [ applause ] and finally, congress needs to help, rather than hinder, law enforcement as it does its job. we should get tougher on people who buy guns with the express purpose of turning around and selling them to criminals. and we should severely punish anybody who helps them do this. since congress hasn't confirmed a director of the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms in six years, they should confirm todd jones, who will be -- who has been acting and i will be nominating for the post. [ applause ] and, at a time when budget cuts are forcing many communities to reduce their police force, we should put more cops back on the job and back on our streets. let me be absolutely clear. like most americans, i believe the sec
resemblance to the party of ronald reagan that would have responded to powell's concerns with an all hands on deck effort to win the war back. it's big enough to win back the white house in 2016. and that's, to the point, we have a more and more bifurcated congress, not the congress you served in. there were 49 votes, only 49 votes for sandy relief last night. that says a lot. there were more than 49 votes for gulf damage and repair after katrina. >> colin powell is a moderate, but i'll tell you what, i understand why ronald reagan reached out to colin powell and saw him as a future leader of the republican party when he let him run the joint chiefs. we need moderate republicans like colin powell on our side. we've run him off. we've run a lot of other moderate republican voters off, and if you want to win 49 states again like ronald reagan won in 1984, if we want to win the landslides that george h.w. bush won, we're going to have to have a much bigger tent, and we can't be the party of todd aiken or richard murdoch or sharon ankle or christine o'donnell. republican extremism in the repub
" this past weekend he did define himself as a republican. a guy that ronald reagan picked to be his chairman of his joint chiefs. colin powell, i know, has supported for the past two terms, has supported barack obama. i'm glad, though, the guy still considers himself a republican and i want to figure out how to get him back under the big tent because as i write in the column you're talking about that's the first thing reagan would have done. reagan would have looked at colin powell okay how can i get that guy on my team. we haven't been thinking that way lately. we both to think that way again. you know what? it's not about ideological tests at the end of the day it's about winning. that's what reagan understood. he didn't win 49 states by accident. >> we have to be the party of solutions. one of the things troubling me right now, look i disagree with barack obama's fiscal and economic policy. i have for four years and i reckon i'll disagree with it for a while longer. i'll tell you this. the guy goes out and gives this gun control, safety speech today. okay. you don't have to agree with eve
the states. the states created the federal government. >>> that was ronald reagan on january 20th 1981. i remember watching that with my father. my dad just kept saying so much that my mom finally said george, shut up i heard it the first time. my dad kept saying if he lives long enough, he'll change the country and the world. he was right. that's what's so exciting about these days mika. so special. i remember lying in a fetal position on the floor after bill clinton won in 1992. >> that was a special day. >> thinking my world had come to an end. i just -- i loathed the guy. but i remember watching him deliver the inaugural address. just for a split second i said maybe, maybe -- and i think that's the magic of every inauguration. >> in all your years, you've learned to love him. >> i wouldn't go that far. >> oh yes, you would. >> we like each other. >> you should see them together at the clinton global initiative. makes me want to puke. welcome back to a special edition of "morning joe." >> i'm trying to be upbeat here. hope springs eternal on this day. >> it sure does. lo

still a republican? i grew up under ronald reagan, and george schultz, and george herbert walker bush, and that's the republican party i knew. i think we've drifted from that. there's nothing wrong starting to drift a little bit back. not because it's good to be moderate. but that's where the american people are. they lost an election. two. >> five out of the last six. and the president will try to, you know, tie everyone together today. one speech can't do that. but what does he need to do, in your view? >> in the speech, i think he needs to appeal to our better angels. raise -- don't just tell me about the policy statements. save that for the state of the union. inspire america today. and i hope that's what he will try to do. but he needs to get to work. and the number one problem is the economy. he's got to fix the economy. the fiscal situation has been fixed, to a large extent. the stock market's doubled. that's pretty good. but he has to get everybody working again. it means fix the economy. it means fix the education. so we're bringing kids along that have the skills for 21st ce
and served under president bush 41 and as ronald reagan me a incendiary comments about the republican party on one of the sunday shows yesterday. >> there is also a dark, a dark intolerance by some in the party. what do i mean by that? i mean they still sort of look down on minorities. how can i evidence that? i see the former governor saying that the president is shucking and jiving that is a racial slave term. >> andrea: today on my radio show, senator rubio had this to say in response --" i disagree with general powell's assessment of the republican party. they placed two hispanics in the u.s. senate and we now have an african-american senator." so, bob, baseless criticism from powell? >> bob: not at all. the way you introduce this thing you said he said the republican party. that's not what he said. he said a small bane in the republican party that looks down on minorities. i believe that's true. i believe when you had kreito in the house he looked down to hispanics. whoever made the shuck and jive, that was that's racial comment. i don't believe that the republican party is all racist
health issue, because behind many of the shooters, from ronald reagan's would-be assassin all the way through what happened, the tragedy in connecticut 30 days ago has been someone with some mental illness and derangement. so i think we have to have, for instance, a very robust discussion. i anticipate, or i'm looking forward to seeing the task force suggests, a discussion for instance, rachel on whether the category of probative people who have been adjudicated as mentally ill, that's what the law says, essentially, they're prohibited, whether or not that should be broadened. for instance, should a person who has a diagnosis from a psychiatrist as being a paranoid schizophrenic be able to go into walmart tomorrow morning and buy a weapon? under the current law, without having been adjudicate as mentally ill in a court of law, under federal law, they would be able to do that. we have to have a serious discussion whether or not that category needs to be expanded. and what you're going to do is bring in a whole bunch of people who have very interested on that. you're going to have nra i
ronald reagan used to confuse movies with reality. whatever happened to the right wing, conservative notion of law and order? here you have these sheriffs and state legislatures around the country, certain red states, saying we will arrest federal law enforcement officers if they enforce the law. the people who sometimes put their lives on the line to protect us. and we're talking about in such disregard. this is what happened back in the '90s when the same crowd was talking about jack buddha thugs and it led, in some ways, toward oklahoma city. this could be heading towards frightening times with this sort of rhetoric. >> let me say this. this is the anniversary year of the march on washington, dr. martin luther king, who his holiday will be on monday when the president is inaugurated. in the famous speech he made, i have a dream, he referred to a governor whose lips drifts with the words of interposition and nullification. that is the words that we're hearing dripping from lips today. interposition and nullification. maybe when they said the president was trying to be a king, maybe
but steven spielberg, tommy lee jones. as tip o'neill famously said about his political foe, ronald reagan, love the sinner. hate the sin. when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neill over to the white house for drinks and raise a glass to one another. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration 2013. here is hoping it spills over to the next four years and both sides of the aisle make a move to be more social and more civil. and, hence, more productive. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz, starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome "the ed show" from new york. republicans are raising the white flag. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. >> the republican game of chicken is over. eric cantore proposes a three-month deal on the debt ceiling. some democrats are calling it a trap. i'll ask dnc chairwoman debbie wasserman schultz what she thinks. democrats are about to drop the ball. tonight, my message to senator harr
of person. >> sean: but he worked for ronald reagan-- >> and why when you try to run on these national offices you get defeated. moreover. >> sean: hang on a second. >> moreover, president obama got 39% of the white vote. it wasn't that he just won because of minorities. >> sean: michael, the democratic party, it was joe biden that said we're going to put you all back in chains. it was al gore that said republicans don't want to count black people in the census before the predomina predominantly black audience and the james byrd ad. if he wanted to be equally as critical, i can't get a direct answer. who are the people, name names and identify what they said and if in fact they are what owe sa he says they are, racism is repugnant. >> it is, and a good friend of ours said if everything is racism, nothing is racism and that's the most unfortunate thing of that phenomenon. i call it it the sharptonization of american politics where you have people that use the race card as a political weapon of mass destruction. and look it, there 's an intolerance in politics, there's an intolerance wit
conservatives were chained to reality, whether they liked it or not. he defended ronald reagan when right wingers attacked him to california and said what would you like him to do, chain himself to the state capitolened read the liberty documents? at the end of the day, it's about winning. is the republican party more likely to win swing voters over if it's embracing colin powell or constantly attacking him. if they could pull moderates like him back and expand the tent. >> you have even seen now with mark rubio, what he's saying around immigration, some of them are beginning to recognize you're not going to be able to be a governing party and get back the white house without having an immigration strategy that allows latinos to be incorporated in the political situati system and have a path to citizenship and paul ryan agreed. some of them are beginning to realize political reality and facts. john boehner, one of the problems, he inflammatounfortun not seem to have the leadership skills to lead instead of following the tea party in his caucus. >> i would disagree. i'm not here to defend
, for being surrounded by cronies and making up things the way he does. this is not ronald reagan or jimmy carter or it is not even george bush for god's sakes. >> stephanie: he's the most like nixon. obama is most like nixon because -- >> see pat on fox news is labeled as a -- >> he was slamming clinton in the '90s. >> stephanie: exactly like him. okay. all right. wow. sexy liberal hal sparks next. more hump days with hal as we continue on "the stephanie miller show."

'll take it. remember it was ronald reagan in 1985 where festivities were actually canceled because the high was 17 degrees, and lower than that throughout the day. so this is pretty good. >> i got to say, it's kind of perfect. robin meade, don lemon and christi paul are along with us along the parade route. robin, i know you were out in the cold of the morning. a lot of people we saw, it's been a good day for hand warmers and body warmers. everybody going through security had them in their gloves and in their shoes and in their coats. >> they are the item of the day. i'll tell you that much. to give you an example of what people here went through, to get through security to go to the parade, to me it felt a little different than getting through security to get to the national mall. it feels more stringent here on the parade route, because if you look, see how close people are able to be to the parade route, compared to the blocks and the blocks on the mall. so when we went through security, they asked us -- it was very hands-on. they took away our diet soda cans. no cans allowed. t
